I have a friend of 40 + years who is a crafter of all sorts and had made a quilt many many years ago but has not made one since. She was gifted a quilt by her sister for a special "0" birthday some years back and felt that she would like to make a "copy" of it in a different colourway and asked if I would help her. This is what she now has
After a trip to a couple of different fabric shops this is her choice of fabrics. She also decided that some tatting will be added to the centre of each of the white blocks.
So the appointed day for lesson one arrived. My kitchen was set up with two cutting stations an ironing station and of course the all important tea/coffee and cake station.
As well as the 30 + 2 1/2" wide strips needed for each of the blue fabrics. We even managed to sub-cut some of those into 2 1/2" squares.
I sent her home with a cutting mat, rotary cutter and spare blade, two rulers and a fair bit of homework - sub cutting the many strips of fabric that were left to cut into 2 1/2" squares.
Happy sewing all
